A cost effective, high quality device to protect water heaters.

The Water Heater Shield is installed on the feed water line just prior to the water heater (tankless or traditional). The 5 micron high efficiency, high performing filter removes dirt, silt and sediment. Siliphos® media within the filter chamber prevents scale and stops corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the element, lining and other surfaces within the water heater.

Benefits
  • Keeps water heaters clean and easy to maintain
  • 5 Micron filter with food-grade polyphosphate
  • Reduces sediment and inhibits scale
  • Designed for all gas or electric water heaters
  • Easy to install - includes installation bracket
  • Double o-ring design for superior leak proofing
  • Filter housing features thicker walls for increased durability

The Problem

Over 85% of U.S. households have hard water with high levels of calcium and magnesium. Hard water can destroy plumbing and shorten the life of water-using appliances by forming scale. Water heaters in particular are at risk. Mitigating scale build-up can extend the life and efficiency of both tankless and traditional water heaters. In fact, most if not all water heater manufacturers require scale inhibition treatment in hard water areas or else their warranty may be voided. Left untreated, hard water can cause significant damage and potentially costly repairs as well as raise energy costs. A general rule of thumb says that 1mm of scale on a heating coil can increase energy costs by 15%.

How It Works

The Water Heater Shield® is installed on the feed water line just prior to the water heater (tankless or traditional). The 5 micron high efficiency, high performing filter removes dirt, rust, salt, silt and sediment. Siliphos® media within the filter chamber prevents scale and stops corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the element, lining and other surfaces within the water heater.

High Quality Components

The Water Heater Shield® is constructed only from the best available components and assembled in the USA. The FDA-grade polypropylene filter housing features thicker walls for increased durability and double O-rings for superior leak proofing. A high-quality, liquid-filled pressure gauge is installed to monitor pressure loss, which indicates the need for a filter change. A pressure relief button on the inlet side of the cap was added to make filter changes quick and easy.

Very pleased!

I've been using the Pelican Shower Filter for about a week now, and I can clearly see, feel and smell the difference. My skin and hair is softer, feels much less dry. Great pressure from the shower head when I use very gentle running water for the shower!!! I was so surprised! Also, you can easily switch it between 2 and 2.5 gallons per minute, so you have even more control over how much water you use! I installed it easily. Happy as can be, as the water in my apartment comes from a lake near a nuclear power center, and this filter actually makes a difference. I've tried others but none were this noticeable of a difference.

Amazing!

Purchased Jan. 2011. The water in our town is hyperchlorinated. This system produces the most wonderful water for drinking, bathing and household use. Our friends are surprised when they drink it. Reordering supplies is simple and delivery is fast. The simple instructions make the system easy to maintain.

Great Water Texture

Water texture is awesome using Pelican Softeners for Well Water... Recommend you use flex piping vs PVC... You can save up to an hour installing the system especially in tight spaces.

AWESOME

I love my Pelican Combo Series! In the five years that I've had my water system , I have never tasted or smelled chlorine in my water. My skin is soft and never dry or itchy. I would recommend this water system to anyone wanting to improve their water!

Best Water in TOWN

We have very poor quality of water in our part of Ohio. After having several National Brand name water firms test the water and give quotes I started studying how to improve our water. PELICAN was and is the answer. The most cost affective,easy to maintain system available. It was very easy to install. If you need to have a plumber do the install it should not be too costly. My neighbors cost fill the water jugs at my house. Our appliances work better, clothes cleaner, bathing is better and the taste is better then bottled H2O... IF YOU WANT THE BEST IT PELICAN !

The Works

We needed the works, Sulfur removal system, Sediment filter, Carbon filter, and Salt-Free softener; we purchased the UV Disinfectant sytem too. We have great clean fresh water at our house and the barn. We are quite happy with the system and we are sure our water is safe to drink.

Excellent Product and Service

I have called Pelican a couple of times and always get a representative who has knowledge about products, services, and processes. Always a great experience. Also, the product is the best out there! My extended family has the PC 600 and PC 1000 and I just referred a friend who purchased one a couple of weeks ago. Keep up the great work!

Excellent Product

I purchased the carbon filter and water softener combo for my new home in May of 2015. It's been a great investment. The water is clean and softer and I've had no loss of water pressure at all. I started shopping these systems back in late 2014 and had numerous discussions with Matt who kept in touch and didn't pressure me at all. Once I closed on my house, I bought it and had a local plumber install it. I am very pleased with it and would recommend this product to anyone! Thank you very much Matt!!!

Great Purchase

I purchased the Pelican Shower Filter on line and in a few short days I received it. The installation was very simple and took about 5 minutes or less to install. Both my wife and I noticed a difference after the first shower. My wife commented that her hair was softer and I noticed that my skin felt and looked better.

Media replacement assistance

I was in the process of replacing my carbon media on a Sunday. And I noticed that the paper instructions that were included did not correspond with the verbiage and the figure #5. So I called customer service on Sunday and they were available. The agent that I talked to was extremely nice, professional and very helpful. So far, so good... A suggestion would be to have a You tube video available on their website for future instructions.

Outstanding Service!

I originally inquired by phone and got professional service in helping me order the exact filters I needed/wanted. After placing the order for the filters (4). they came in short order. I installed the new filtering system and they work like a charm. I'm glad to find a company that represents a true product and a product that does what it is supposed to do. I highly this company and the products they sell
